Default auto tranny shift kit?

I just acquired a 97 EX sedan with a bunch of miles for the wife. The slush box is the typical slow shifting unit, wondering if theres some simple mods to increase clutch pressure and get a firmer shift? They are the same principle as any automatic, and there should be a valve body and possibly a shift resistor that can be messed with to get a firmer shift.

I wondered about this for awhile before I decided it wasn't worth it.

I never found a "shift kit" per se, as I would expect for any generic domestic trans (TH350/400, C4) but they do sell upgraded clutches and kevlar bands.

Just trying to get a little quicker shift out of it, nothing I'm going to turbo or anything. I'm going to try and get a low mile a/t from japan in our next order and just change it out. The level 10 thing looks like a hack for the tranny controller don't need that for the wifey ride.

I think some JDM automatics have an LSD... May want to look into that
